John's Pass Village and Boardwalk, Madeira Beach

An early 20th-century fishing village-turned-tourist-attraction, John's Pass Village and Boardwalk connects the Gulf of Mexico with the Intracoastal Waterway, Tampa Bay, and Boca Ciega Bay. The town still supports a fishing industry. Fresh catches from the fishing fleet are served at many restaurants in the area. You'll see Jet Skis and parasails gliding across the surface of the water near a reconstructed pirate ship that rests in the harbor. Consider signing up for a dolphin-sighting tour to enjoy the antics of the attraction's most charming occupants.

  • This is a really fun time. Tons of stuff to do in a very small area. Great photo opportunities. Beach access directly across the street. Wonderful day for tourists and locals (like us) entertaining guests. As expected, prices are higher on pretty much everything including food and parking. Lots of choices for larger groups with different tastes.
  • I enjoyed my time at the beach SO much. The water was clear and a little chilly but overall, an AWESOME experience. We went to Sculley's restaurant, Mad Pub and a souvenir shop, or three, like Surf Style. I would definitely come back here again!
  • I love this place!!! I go very frequently. TONS of great local shops, food, tours and everything else you can thing of. The beach is right across the street as well so you can make a whole day of it. Enjoyable for all ages!
  • Great spot to spend the day. There is shopping, dining, and the beach. I brought my son to the arcade and we had ice cream then a nice walk on the beach. All in all a great place to bring the kids or not. Could have stayed here all day!
  • One of our favorite places to go! You can fish, swim, drink, jet ski, and go out on the boats. It really is beautiful. There are several different places to park but earlier is better. There are shops if you want to go shopping or grab a bite! Love it!
